Authentic Black Bean Posole recipe

Updated on May 6, 2013

Mexican Posole Recipe

This is not the average posole recipe. This is a black bean posole recipe like no other posole you have yet tried. If you like black beans and you like posloe, you will love this Mexican posole recipe. Fresh and dried cayenne peppers provide a combustible jolt to this tomato based stew of beans and hominy.

A classic posole will be more plain and less spicy than the posole recipe I present to you, and if you love the rich, flavorful, and spicy qualities of a good Mexican posole, this recipe can be refrigerated for up to five days and taste even better each time to take it out to reheat.

This authentic posole recipe is particularly comforting on a cold and rainy day. It could easily become a new comfort food.

Black bean posole goes well with cold Mexican beer, Horchata or plain water.
